Through this collaboration the companies plan to develop solutions that address technology needs in emerging dual-use and national security markets, including bringing to market new laser wavelengths, and higher performance solutions that deliver more efficient and cost-effective products. The MOU sets out the framework for collaboration, however, is not a definitive agreement with commercial terms and timelines.

Applied Energetics specializes in developing next-generation ultrashort pulse (USP) optical systems for the US Department of Defense, defense primes, the intelligence community, as well as addressing the commercial, medical, and space markets.

Glossary
laser
A laser, which stands for "light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation," is a device that produces coherent and focused beams of light through the process of optical amplification based on the principles of quantum mechanics. Key features of lasers include: Stimulated emission: The operation of a laser is based on stimulated emission, a quantum phenomenon where atoms or molecules in an excited state release photons when they encounter other photons. This process leads to...
directed energy
Directed energy refers to a type of energy that is emitted and transferred in a controlled direction. The term is often associated with military and technological applications where energy, typically in the form of electromagnetic radiation, is focused and directed toward a specific target. Directed energy systems can take various forms, including lasers and high-power microwaves. The key characteristic is the intentional concentration of energy to achieve a desired effect on a target. In...
